    wiring a Kicker L5

    Alright on the L5 it of course has two positives and two negatives. Now there is a dot on one positive and one negative. I guess showing the ones with dots as one voice coil, and the ones without dots the other voice coil. When wiring Parallel / Parallel I know I have a wire connecting the two positives together and then another wire connecting the two negatives together. Now when running the positive and negative wire out of the sub to the amp do I run the positive and negative out of the same voice coil? or the positive out of one voice coil then the negative out of the other voice coil?

    not sure what year l5 you have, or what voice coil config also

    For parallel wiring bridge the two + coils together, then bridge the two - coils together. Now run your + to the amp from one coil and your - to the amp from the other coil.

    Alright so the positive that goes to the amp comes from one voice coil and the negative that goes to the amp comes from the other voice coil right?

    I thought the ones with the dots signified one voice coil, and the ones without the dots signified the other voice coil.

    Re: wiring a Kicker L5

    yes it does, wire it exactly like the diagram i gave you. trust me just wire it like that, dont worry about anything else, look at the diagram, that is exactly how you wire it parrallel. dont worry about the ohms it has on it those dont mean anything in your case, that is just to show you how to wire it in parrallel for a dvc subwoofer

    Re: wiring a Kicker L5

    Would there be a difference if I wired it like this:

    Wire connecting the two positives together
    Wire connecting the two negatives together
    Positive wire coming out then into the amp
    Negative wire coming out of the same voice coil into the amp

    Because that is how I wired them because connersdad19 said to wire the ones with the dots to the amp.

    you there should not be any difference, as long as both voice coils are getting the power, you should be fine. hook em up
